First time my bikes been down

First time my bikes been down and I was no where near it. I went to SC for the weekend to visit my fam. and sat. night I decided to leave my bike under my granny's car port. Well later that night it stormed really bad and my granny car port is on dirt. It's packed dirt and I figured the bike would be ok. Well needless to say the dirt got over saturated and with the wind blowing strong enough to tear limbs off trees my bike went down . So the next morning my little cousin tells me he had to pick my bike up and I'm like Nooo and run out and take a look at it, and it has a few scratches and the paint is cracked. So lesson learned for me.



Don't take bike back to SC lol.

At least you weren't riding and injured in the process. It sux but it can be fixed, not as easy to recuperate from an injury.
